As far as Charlamagne Tha God is concerned, the new Wendy Williams Documentary is demeaning. The co-host of The Breakfast Show, who was a staff member of Williams, isn’t clear on why the cameras should be anywhere near the media magnate.

“Where Is Wendy Williams?” Documentary Gives a Clear Picture of Her Ordeal

On February 1, the trailer for the two-part documentary was released. The film, set to air on February 24 and 25, centers on Wendy’s life following her retirement from the talk show space. Fans had originally expected the documentary to drop when she was spotted filming in New Jersey. But after many months of waiting, they were let in on Wendy’s reality.

The talk show host’s son, Kevin Hunter Jr., confessed that his mother wasn’t her best self after suffering bouts of grave disease. She had resorted to alcohol as a coping mechanism. At the same time, her decision-making was faulted as it was primarily done by people in her inner circle.

Kevin Jr. expressed his disgust at the way people treated Wendy in her frail condition. Fortunately, her family arrived in time to save her, and since then, she has remained with them.

Miss Jones, a radio host who worked with Wendy, echoed that the onscreen personality was away from her home in Florida with her family. She had visited Wendy’s property following growing concerns from close friends.

Charlamagne Tha God Reacts to the Wendy Williams Documentary

The new Wendy Williams documentary has attracted comments, including those who sympathize with the veteran host. But Charlamagne Tha God refused to turn a blind eye to the entire production team. Even though Wendy’s family and loved ones were close to her while sharing her story, he believed it was degrading.

He shared, per HipHopDX:

“I immediately prayed for Wendy after I watched that,” he said on the show on Friday (February 2). “And I don’t understand why they got the camera in that woman’s face. Y’all taking advantage of the dysfunction. Why do you want to document somebody’s downfall?”

Charlamagne’s relationship with Wendy goes way back. As a newbie, he worked on The Wendy Williams Experience. But in 2008, Kevin Sr. relieved him of his duties. He went on to establish himself as the co-host of the famous The Breakfast Show, where artists share nearly everything.
